Q18 c)


Q18c - Mission⁄Purpose


1. Q 18 (c) What operating rules will you adopt to eliminate or minimize social costs (e.g., time or financial resource costs, as well as various types of consumer vulnerabilities)? What other steps will you take to minimize negative consequences⁄costs imposed upon consumers?

It is important to note that ifm does not intend to to sell domains to a third party at any time. Therefore social costs (e.g., time for financial resource costs, as well as various types of consumer vulnerabilities) will not occur. Neither will there be any negative consequences⁄costs imposed upon consumers.


2. Q 18 (c) i.) How will multiple applications for a particular domain name be resolved, for example, by auction or on a first-come⁄first-serve basis?

As mentioned above we are not intending to sell domains to third party. We will be deciding to offer the second level domains based on our business requirements and priorities. Requesters do not have a right to a particular domain. If they are offered a domain it will be without valuable consideration.


3. Q 18 (c) ii.) Explain any cost benefits for registrants you intend to implement (e.g., advantageous pricing, introductory discounts, bulk registration discounts).

Due to the reasons stated above there wonʹt be any costs or cost benefits for registrants (e.g., advantageous pricing, introductory discounts, bulk registration discounts).


4. Q 18 (c) iii.) Note that the Registry Agreement requires that registrars be offered the option to obtain initial domain name registrations for periods of one to ten years at the discretion of the registrar, but no greater than ten years. Additionally, the Registry Agreement requires advance written notice of price increases. Do you intend to make contractual commitments to registrants regarding the magnitude of price escalation? If so, please describe your plans.

As we do not intend to sell domains there will be no contractual commitments to registrants regarding the magnitude of price escalation.
